December 22, 2006: Keep the hankies ready

Written by Bob McCormick on 11/08/2006 11:43:00 PM

As y'all know, I blog quite a bit about football stuff, & I cover Conference USA.

One of the newer C-USA colleges, Marshall University, suffered an indescribable loss back in November 1970. On November 14th of that year, Marshall's football team looked forward to heading back to Huntington, West Virginia, and celebrating their win over East Carolina University.

They never made it home. Their plane crashed on approach to the local airport. All 75 passengers on their chartered plane perished in the crash.

On December 22, Warner Brothers will release "We Are Marshall", the story about the experiences of the town, University, and Program that had to put itself back together.

Here is a USA Today writeup about the film, and here is the trailer (warning: misty eyes moment ahead).
